@Selfridges Summer Beauty Event - Manchester Exchange

Last Wednesday night as well as the South Beach Swimwear Party, I attended the Selfridges Summer Beauty Event at the Manchester Exchange Square store, check me and my busy schedule.. haha!

I think Selfridges Beauty Events are always fantastic and this one was no exception, attendees were treated to makeup demonstrations, free hair styling, manicures, popcorn, candyfloss, snow cones and musical entertainment by the lovely Zoe - London Lipgloss! 

I got wristbanded up (I do love a wristband) and had a nosey round the brands to see their summer collections and the one that definitely drew me in the most was MAC's Summer Bronzey offerings!
You can see from the above pics that I had a little play with their products and had to have quite a serious chat with myself that I simply do not need any more nude eye products. What I really wanted to get were the chubby eye pencils that you can see scrawled on my hand! I also swatched one of the bronzers and a coral blush that was divine. I seriously could have gone wild but instead I limited myself to my staple MAC tinted moisturiser!

Azature nail polishes were something I had heard about but not actually seen in the flesh until I spotted them at the event - my picture doesn't do the polish justice in just how sparkly it was - it was the most amazingly pigmented emerald shimmer polish I have possibly ever seen.. I am aware that is a big statement! 

Azature are the brand who made the INSANELY expensive Black Diamond Nail Polish - so if you have a spare £160,000 (yep that's right) click here to purchase!!! The Green Polish pictured above isn't quite so expensive but at £17 is a luxury treat!

Hair do's were being done courtesy of the Fake Bake Boutique and I opted for a backcombed half up do, however by the time I got home and took a picture I looked so tired and gross that the picture won't be making it's way onto the blog post unfortunately.. they created some amazing up-dos though so definitely worth a try if you want a new look for an event or a night out!

If you are sad to have missed out on this event then fear not - the Manchester Trafford Centre event takes place on Thursday evening from 6-10pm so get yourself down there - Zoe's playlist is awesome!!
